BCcampus coordinates a variety of educational technology sandbox software projects for the B.C. post-secondary community. Do you have an educational technology that you would like to Sandbox? In this session you will learn how BCcampus can help you determine if a software application has teaching & learning potential, and explore what that potential may be within a safe & contained Sandbox environment. The BCcampus Sandbox will help institutional partners better understand the operational requirements of the application and promote inter-institutional collaboration by encouraging multiple institutions to participate in a sandbox project. As a deliverable of each sandbox project, the information gathered during the Sandbox project is made open & public so that institutions can make informed decisions around the use of new and emerging educational technologies. Join us to see how your institution can jump in and play in the BCcampus Sandbox.
